Below is a diverging stacked bar chart that represents the relative truthfulness of politicians’ statements, with truthful and mostly truthful statements stacked to the right, and false statements to the left...

  • Design Better Data Tables
    After being the bread and butter of the web for most of its early history, tables were cast aside by many designers for newer, trendier layouts...The design of a table is its linchpin: if it’s done right, it makes complex data easy to scan and compare. If it’s done wrong, it can render information completely incomprehensible. So let’s do it right, right?...
  • A Collection of Books About Data Visualisation (121 Books)
    Here is a collection of books that cover data visualisation, visual design, communication and other closely-related subject areas. The collection presented generally comprises books I own or I have read from a library. There are some I have not yet had chance to read but I know merit being included in a reading list like this. I will keep adding new titles to the collection as and when I come across them...
  • What I Wish I Knew About Data For Startups
    I’ve been part of the data team where I’ve been doing all things data: analysis, presentations, engineering, training, etc. We started with a very rudimentary stack to track and understand our product usage. Over time, we improved our infrastructure and our tooling.

You can install it using your favorite dependency manager - doesn't matter if it is NPM or bower. You can also directly download distribution if you do not use any of these. It supports many module systems (commonjs, AMD, TypeScript). You can easily customize look in your css and overwrite all default values by providing your own...
  • React Native ART and D3
    The most powerful feature of React Native is that it lets you write your native application using React and JavaScript. React is certainly powerful as it greatly simplifies the mental model required when constructing your UI. However what's even more powerful is the ability to use JavaScript...I had to create graphs in a React Native application. To achieve this goal I used D3 within React Native. In this article I'm going to introduce you to how to create D3 graphs in a React Native application...
